EOIN Doyle stands to miss up to four weeks of action for Wanderers with a hamstring injury.

Ian Evatt confirmed the Irish striker may not play in November after a scan on Monday revealed slightly more significant damage than was first feared.

Arthur Gnahoua deputised for Doyle in Tuesday night’s 1-0 win against Bradford City and looks set to continue at Leyton Orient this weekend.

Evatt has been pleased with the impact made by ex-Macclesfield Town and Kidderminster Harriers man Gnahoua since he signed on a free transfer at the end of September.

“Eoin Doyle is a fantastic player but he’ll be missing for three or four weeks now, so it’s an opportunity for Arthur. He took his opportunity well, he was excellent.”

The new striking partnership of Gnahoua and Delfouneso will require some work, Evatt admits, with the two players sharing some similar characteristics.

“The one thing with Arthur and Nathan Delfouneso is that they are both receivers and ball carriers, so they like to link play and drop into pockets,” he said.

“To create the space we want to create and have possession we need at least one of them to be stretching the back line to create the space for someone else. At times the two of them were coming to feet, and again, that’s something we can work on in training and improve.”

Wanderers have now lost once in their last five, slowly turning around form which had been such a concern at the start of the campaign.

Evatt is also pleased to see that defenders like Alex Baptiste and Ricardo Santos, who also came in for heat at times from supporters, are also finding some consistency.

“Football is a funny game and when you are not winning games consistently at this football club then pressure is going to come on to us, no doubt,” he said.

“But as I’ve said, we have got 22 new players playing a whole new way, a whole new system, they haven’t had a chance to go out and build relationships with each other outside of the training ground because of the pandemic we’re in, so it’s taking time.

“We are seeing the right signs, we are seeing them come out of their shells, we’re seeing that character come together. We are getting used to what each player wants and needs from the team.

“It’s great for the back lads because they have come under criticism as well and they are responding the right way. There’s a theme here – I’d like to think I know what I’m doing.

“We will get it right, eventually. We are not where we want to be right now but it’s not about right now, it’s about where we’re going. That’s the most important thing.”
